Celta’s 2 favorites to compete with Iván Villar

The Ukrainian goalkeeper has not had an easy season at Real Madrid, where he has barely had opportunities. But not only that, but when he has had them he has not been able to take full advantage of his moment.
That is why everything indicates that this summer he will leave the white club, either transferred or on loan.
